In a gruesome act, extreme left-wing Naxal rebels have killed five villagers, including two students, in the eastern Indian state of Jharkhand, a senior police official said Monday.
"The incident took place in Tamar village Monday night when a group of armed Naxals shot dead the five whom they had abducted. The rebels killed them on suspicion of being police informers," the official said.
The state police have launched a massive manhunt to track down the culprits.
"We would do the level best to arrest those responsible for the killings," he said.
The killings came just days after Naxals had killed four villagers, including a little girl, in Bundu area.
